Emergency legislation passes House of Commons


The House of Commons has passed emergency legislation to help Canadians deal with the financial impact of COVID-19.

A handful of MPs debated the bill early this morning.

Just before 6 a.m. Government House Leader Pablo Rodriquez tweeted out ‘It’s done. The House has adopted the emergency support announced to face COVID-19. It’s now up to the Senate.’

Yesterday some Conservative members voiced concerns, calling parts of the legislation ‘a power grab.’
